Smart Companies, Artists, and Stations Encourage Voting
Hundreds of companies across America have joined or launched campaigns to encourage registration and voting in this fall's national elections. Most popular music artists have lent their names, voices, and image to voting campaigns, as have thousands of radio stations, including the hundreds using the campaign assets at YouGotta.Vote.
Consumer goods marketers like Patagonia, Absolut, Under Armour, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, and Old Navy know that this election matters to their customers and their brand. In media, iHeart, Cumulus, Townsquare, Sony Records and ViacomCBS are just a few of the heavyweights getting the word out.
Many campaigns are branded, such as Rock the Vote; others, like YouGotta.Vote, offer unbranded assets and information that can be folded into any campaign. Joel Denver, who co-founded YouGotta.Vote with Alan Burns, noted that "it doesn't matter whose campaign you participate in or what it's called. What matters is that you help encourage participation this fall." Alan Burns added "the more people who vote this fall, the greater the likelihood that Americans will have confidence in the result."
